To blog or not to blog. That is the question. And I have given this particular question a lot of thought. So I’m going to quickly share with you the pros and cons of blogging again and my final decision.
1. Writing a blog post, telling a story, making it interesting, adding pictures, and so on takes time. Time that is needed and could be used elsewhere.
2. Does anyone still read blogs? So many of the blogs I read have difted off into the sunset replaced by a quicker means of communication, instagram, Facebook, and so on. So, if I put in the time and effort to compose a blog post, will it only be read by me?
1. My blog has always been for me. It was not read by millions of followers and it was rare that anyone left a comment on the story I wrote or the pictures I included in the post. But… My blog was a great journal for my sewing and crocheting projects. A place where I could make notes, update my progress and show off my completed projects.
2. My blog motivated me. It was an unwritten and unenforced deadline to get my projects done. It required that I take progress pictures that could be referred to later. It also required that I take construction notes so I had something to write about.
So, if you haven’t figured it out yet, the pros outweigh the cons and I’m going to start blogging again. But… you’re going to see some changes in my posts. Nonetheless, I hope that you will enjoy my blog and follow along with my sewing and crocheting adventures.
